New homes in Old Buckenham

If you go down in the woods today...

Several large heaps of earth, sticks and rubble have appeared recently beside the pond at Manor Corner and in amongst the trees in nearby Prince Harry's Wood. It turns out that these have been built to provide suitable accommodation for the great crested newts that are living in the locality.
The proximity of these protected newts has delayed building on the nearby Cotman Housing site and it appears that the aim is to persuade the newts to establish themselves outside the area approved for the new houses.
